The Nigerian National Television Authority, NTA, has caused a huge stir on the social media on a case of mistaken identity after it gave a Minister the tag of the President Federal Republic of Nigeria, during its national news broadcast on Saturday.
The national television made a technical mistake while televising a live broadcast of the Minister of Communications, Hon. Abdul-Raheem Adebayo Shittu, addressing the press and tagged him “President, Federal Republic Of Nigeria”.
Nigerians have gone on Twitter to frown at the mistake, stating it’s a “national shame”. See reactions:
